My name is Claire and I am in my thirties. I love learning about history from everywhere around the world, as well as state and presidential history in the U.S, I am a graphic designer and I love to see vintage design/art, especially maps. In school I majored in English-Communications and I love to read, humor and history, memoirs and mysteries. Some of my favorite authors include Jane Austen, Bill Bryson, and Terry Pratchett.
I spent a semester in London when I was in college and was able to travel to Italy, Germany and France while I was there. Outside of this semester abroad, I have spent my entire life in San Antonio and my family (on the paternal side) has been in Texas since the 1850s, when they migrated from Germany. I love learning about where my ancestors came from and imagining what their lives were like.
I live with my sister, Grace, our dog Macy (a Carolina dog, also known as an American Dingo), and our orange stripey cat Schroeder (named after the Charlie Brown character). We just got a new gray kitten called Theo. I like to hear about other people's pets and I have a weakness for pictures of cute animals.
